How Do You Choose The Right Spectacle Frames For Your Face?

We all know how important it is to have the perfect pair of spectacles that fit both our face shape and style. And while we would all love to have a pair of glasses for each outfit, it’s not always possible! So that means you need to find a pair of spectacle frames that both suit your face, sense of style, and personality. Twenty 20 Vision has spectacles and frames to suit everyone! Pay us a visit to find the best pair for you.

So what’s the best way to pick out the frames that will work for you? Here are some tips on picking the right spectacle frames for your face: 

Consider Your Face Shape 

Your face shape is one of the most essential elements when choosing glasses. While everyone’s features are unique to them, everyone has one of four face shapes. To pick the perfect pair of spectacle frames to suit your face, you should consider whether your face is round, square, oval, or heart-shaped. 

If you have a round face, then go for frames that are rectangular in shape as this will contrast nicely with your face shape. For square faces, seek out frames that are slightly curved, as this will soften your angular features. Oval-shaped faces suit virtually any kind of frame, and heart-shaped faces look great in cat-eye glasses or round frames with bold rims. 

Opt for Quality 

When choosing spectacles, it’s best to opt for quality frames that are made with strong, durable materials such as titanium or acetate. Spectacles need to be sturdy enough to survive the hard wear of daily use. Whether you need to wear glasses all day, or just when you’re reading, they need to be able to withstand being taken off and on multiple times a day. This will ensure your glasses can withstand the daily wear and tear, so they last longer. It’s also a good idea to go for adjustable nose pads in order to create a comfortable fit. 

Think About Colours & Patterns 

When it comes to choosing the right frames for your face, you should also consider colours and patterns. If you want to draw attention to your eyes, then go for bright or colourful frames that bring out your eyes and make them stand out. On the other hand, if you prefer something more subtle, opt for a classic black frame. 

Another great way to add some pizazz to your look is to go with patterned frames. A fun polka-dot pattern can give your look an edge, while a stylish tortoiseshell will add some vintage glamour. 

Take A Selfie!

Have you ever tried on a pair of frames and not been able to see what they look like on you because you can’t see well without your prescription lenses? It’s more common than you think! And even though optometrists have mirrors available to see yourself, it’s not always easy to see exactly how you look with a pair of sample frames on your face. You don’t want to regret your choice! 

At Twenty 20 Vision, we can recommend a great way to see if you look good in a pair of spectacle frames or not. All you have to do is pick a few frames you like, try them on, and snap a selfie! Then you can go through the pictures and choose which frames look best on your face.

Visit Your Optometrist 

Finally, the best way to find the perfect frames for you is to visit your optometrist. An optometrist like us at Twenty 20 Vision will have tons of spectacle frames available for you to view and try on.  Your optometrist will provide access to a wide range of frames in different styles and brands and can help you narrow down your selection. They’ll also be able to check that the glasses fit properly and adjust them if needed.
